    Jim Tiner: Hi, I am Jim Tiner, professional paper hanger. Today we are hanging wallpaper borders. Right now I am going to show you how to get border out of wallpaper. Now our roll of wallpaper, this is the same cost as this. However as you can see there are three borders within this roll of paper. Why would I buy this? Well a lot of times you cant find the border that you like. But you can find the wallpaper that you like and if you could trim this out, you could have three rolls of border which are a lot more than this roll of border. So I am going to show you how to do that, and is really very simple. You want to make sure you have a straight edge and you have your border that you wan to keep picked out as you can see we have three here. I have a straight edge who we want to make it the same as the top. Its usually pretty simple because you are going to have a top thats going to be basically the same as the bottom and you have a border. Dont forget there are two more to cut out of this roll. You want to only cut out what you need and remember you can cut out anything you want to cut out to make it exactly like you want or exactly like you planned.

    Okay we have learned how to get that border out of our roll of wallpaper. Now we are going to hang the wallpaper borders.
